Practices forced to re-open lists in crisis area leading to patient safety concerns


A legal warning was given by a QC that adverse working conditions would not be considered a legal defence against prosecution. (I'm afraid I can't find the link). The implication is that if you are aware that your practice is unsafe, you have to hand back your contract or be prepared to stand in the dock. The more interesting legal question in my view is does using such tactics against practices constitute fraud, misfeasance or illegal contract?
